    So event driven programming relies on user events to trigger lines of code. The easiest thing to implement are buttons and textboxes, you could create a simple mock up of an ordering system, that saves the input of some text boxes on a button click to a text file, along with the current date and some user info like an address. You'll find a lot of tutorials on YouTube.

    What specifically do you need help with?

    For the program just do something basic like a job quoting system or a MIS, would be simple just use the form builder in VS and add the code where appropriate (i assume you've been taught VB?) as an extension you could look in to having a database to store customer, employee and job details, also how about an invoicing system? would be easy to do and you could make it allow users to print off their invoices think theres a function for that in VB

    Hope this helps
